My Weavers start in Lorraine, France and come to America in the person of John Weaver who fought for three years in a NC regiment in the Amer Rev. war. He married Martha Sherrod, had five children and died, year unknown. She moved to TN and died in 1838 in Marshall Co. Her son moved to MO and lived in Greene Co. until his death. The last Weaver in my family is Angeline Ross Weaver, my g-grandmother who married William Andrew Lawing.

Angeline was born in Springfield, MO in Greene Co. MO in 1823. I have some info that says John and Barbara were married in Georgia and other info that says he was an early settler in MO.

The question is "how early is early?". Another question is "Is a settler born to the area or has a settler moved into it from some other place?"

From what I've gathered checking into the border area of the Carolinas prior to 1790, grants of land in Georgia were given to Carolina men who served in the Revolutionary War. I wouldn't be surprised if John Weaver I received one of those land grants.

The information I have on Jonathan or John Weaver is from the 1860 and 1870 census of Sebastian County, Sugarloaf Township and Post Office in Arkansas. He was born in Georgia, Rebecca in Tennessee, their first child in Tennessee. The second child, John H, was born in Missouri about the same time as, maybe after, Martha Sherrod died in Tennessee.

The value of Jonathon/John's personal property in 1860 was $800. In 1870, the value of his real estate was $645, and the value of his personal property was $405. That makes me think he arrived in Arkansas prior to 1860 with an inheritance.

It looks to me like your John Weaver III and my Jonathan/John Weaver are the same person. What do you think?

Another interesting coincidence(?) is that Walter and Allie Weaver named one of my maternal uncles "Robert Lorane". He hates that name, because it's a "girl's name", but was he named for his ancestral city? He might like his name better if that were true and he knew it - LOL
